We complain about the officials, we blame them for corruption, and they are actually the exact reflection of our entire society.
Recently, I talked with the manager of one business center. He says that corruption is much worse in their environment than in state bodies. It turned out that when tenants come to business centers to negotiate an office lease, they immediately offer the manager a “rollback” for the “divine rent”. Moreover, when contractors or suppliers come about the ad, they casually wonder how much they have to pay from the paid by the business center amount to the manager.
My interlocutor is honest with his founders, so he refuses everyone, but based on the reaction of the tenants, contractors and suppliers, he concludes that corruption is very developed in private companies.
P.S. It does not justify corruption in state bodies at all. I just draw attention to another negative phenomenon in our society
